The classic feeling of the exterior is maintained in the tile de- 
coration which is Archaic Greek in design and Greek in color. 
Four colors of terra cotta are used; ivory, golden buff, pink tan 
and deep crimson terra cotta. The black accents used help con- 
vey the impression of an Attic Greek Temple in tone and color. 



HISTORICAL FOREWORD 



' I 'he story of Ceramics is the History of Architecture; more even, tor it is due 
■*■ to the inscriptions found largely in ceramic remnants that a knowledge of 
early civilizations exists today. 

In countries where clay deposits are rare the use of ceramic products in build- 
ing is usually subordinate. Its highest development coincides with the occurrence 
of suitable materials, necessity for utilization and artistic propensities. These three 
requisite conditions were highly developed in the far Eastern countries that 
cradled the infant civilizations. The clay was there and a material was needed 
for building; brick resulted, then artistic impulses created the decoration, color 
and glaze, and Tile was born. 

Modified by these and other less manifest influences, the ornamental-tile makers' 1 
craft has flitted fitfully hither and thither in the wake of early civilizations, leaving 
indelible traces where once the Babylonian, Egyptian, Persian, Arab, Mongol and 
Moor held sway. 

It has been said, "The useful Arts are the offspring of Necessity," but it might 
be added that necessity more often prompts us to borrow than to invent; so it was, 
when the need arose in Asia, invention followed; but from Asia it was borrowed 
by the Egyptian, who taught it to the Greek, who later gave it to his Roman 
and Turkish master; from the Turks, the Saracens carried the knowledge from Persia 
and Byzantium to Spain; Spain or Byzantium passed it on to Italy; Holland learned 
it from Italy and later when civil strife forced many Hollanders to flee to England, 
they took the art with them, whence it crossed the Atlantic to America. 

In its travels, observant and inventive people added to it their own touch of 
genius; and the art gathered utility, variety and beauty; it won the favor of 
princes and was installed in palaces and temples; and ebbing and flowing with 
the changing tide of national prosperity, developed as genius, enterprise, patron- 
age and fashion advanced. 

In the Eastern and Central portion of the United States, where the source 
of ceramic inspiration was England, little if any attention was given to Tile, but 
in California, particularly Southern California, where Spain and the Orient as 
well as England from the East, combined their talents in the most fertile clay field 
in the world, Ceramics came into its own and Tile has been produced that reflects 
in imperishable lustre the combined beauty of all civilizations.

DECORATIVE TILE 



Decorative Faience Tile differs from Faience Tile only in its 
decorative quality. This decorative quality, however, 
represents the most fugitive and eagerly sought after element 
in the architectural field; that of a permanent and beautiful 
means of flat wall embellishment. 

There is no building project large or small, regardless of the 
type, that can afford to ignore the innumerable uses of decorative 
tile. Wherever color need exists, decorative tile belongs, and 
today when color in architecture is becoming more and more in' 
sistent, it behooves the Architect to give this material careful 
consideration. 

Mural decorations in some of the most important buildings, 
witness the nine Aesop Fable panels in the new Netherlands 
Hotel, New York, or the fourteen Stations of the Cross, in the 
Church of St. Cecelia, Los Angeles, bear out the fact of the uni- 
versal adaptability of Decorative Tile. 

Museums, Public Libraries and Public Buildings, Churches, 
Schools, Auditoriums, and Theatres, in fact every building that 
has a past, present or future to portray pictorially, should know 
the almost unlimited possibilities of Decorative Tile. 

Gladding, McBean & Co. maintains a staff of highly capable 
artists, a part of whose function it is to prepare designs at small 
scale, rendered in color, for the treatment of any architectural 
feature. These may be augmented by larger scale details and 
finally by full-size cartoons for final approval by architect and 
owner.

Santa Barbara Biltmore Hotel 
Reginald D. Johnson, Architect 



Every institution has its history, the heritage of which has been a vital 
factor in its career. This history is best portrayed in the unfading 
beauty of color, the unlimited possibility of design, and the undying per- 
manence of material, which have made decorative tile a logical material for 
mural decoration. In this manner, Banks, Churches, Schools, Libraries, 
Theatres, and all other institutions with stories to tell, may bring their 
histories forcibly before the public. 

Above, the discovery of the Port of Santa Barbara stirs every imagina- 
tion and serves to recall much of the early history of California. 

The Art and Research Department of Gladding, McBean & Co. is 
ready at all times to study the needs of its clients and prepare the draw- 
ings for their individual problems.

FAIENCE TILE 



Faience tile has attained such importance as 
an essential in every building project that 
it should be given early and careful considera- 
tion. It now has not only the utilitarian value 
of sanitation, but the aesthetic value of color 
as well. 

The Faience Tile Department of Gladding, 
McBean fe? Co., has developed by constant re- 
search and experiment a product which is the 
best that experience, science and art can pro- 
duce. 

In certain instances colors have been de- 
veloped for special purposes; such as "Hospital 



Gray Green," tor use in operating rooms. 
Other colors are more appropriate for resi- 
dences, apartments and other essentially per- 
sonal situations. All have qualities of texture 
and color value which make them blend and 
harmonize with one another. 

Moldings, coves, bases, decorative borders 
and inserts, and bathroom fixtures are made to 
match and harmonize with any color scheme 
selected. 

Following is a list of standard colors with 
stock numbers for convenience in specifying or 
ordering.

ACOUSTIC TILE 



Gladding, McBean & Co. Acoustic Tile is an 
all clay, fireproof material having the property 
of great sound absorption. It is used on walls 
and ceilings of auditoriums, churches, assembly 
halls, and all other rooms where it is desirable 
to subdue noises, echoes, or reverberation. 

It is cellular in texture and may be made in 
colors to match any stone or terra cotta. 

Its weight is approximately one fourth that 
of ordinary clay tile. 

Professor Vern C. Knudsen states in his test 



conducted on this material: "The Coefficient at 
C 4 (512 double vibrations per second) is that 
commonly used in calculating the reverberations 
in rooms. Gladding, McBean 6? Co. Acoustic 
Tile gave a coefficient of .29 at C 4 . This is even 
higher than most acoustic plasters on the mar- 
ket, and is about ten times as absorptive as 
ordinary plaster. It therefore has high merit, 
acoustically." 

Sizes can be made to correspond with ashlar 
or tile surfaces.
